6036 Three Circular Bin Labels


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a group of three circular bin labels which have pencilled legends, but were originally blanks - left 'in the biscuit'.  They are not a set, but were each made by Wedgwood.

1) "Tinta", neatly pencilled.  The reverse is stamped 'Wedgwood", 'HUR', and 'N' .

2) "Marcobrunner 1862" apparently by the same hand as 1).  The reverse is stamped 'Wedgwood' and FArrow and Jackson London & Paris"

 3) "Sherry From Bin 2 back bottled June 72".  The reverse also stamped Wedgwood  beneath "T Rolfe, Wine Cooper &c 10 Great St Helfns" (sic).

The Marcobrunner label is thicker and slightly larger than the other two.

Date: c.1840

Dimensions: 3", 7.7 cm diameter
